On Thursday, October 18th, join GO Magazine, The Cliks, Margaret Cho and Exes & Ohs‘, Michelle Paradise at a star-studded benefit for The Callen-Lorde Community Health Center’s Lesbian Health Services. This very special event will kick off GO Magazine’s GO For the Cure Tour ’08. The tour will be comprised of a series of events and programs produced throughout the country to raise awareness and funds for women’s cancer charities.
The kick-off event, featuring an exclusive performance by The Cliks, will be held at the stunning night-spot Sol, a former warehouse in West Chelsea’s clubland. Under the 30-foot ceilings and along the plush leather booths, you can hob-knob with 600 of your fellow GO readers, while taking in the pop and rock ‘n’ roll riffs of the much-buzzed-about Toronto-based band The Cliks, led by transgender heartthrob Lucas Silveira. Since their recent European tour and appearances along Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Tour, The Cliks have been making waves and impressing critics everywhere. Including music lovers in NYC. The band was selected to grace the cover of GO Magazine’s August 2007 Music Issue. Read the piece online at gomag.com.
The foursome has also won over sassy comedian-cum-burlesque queen Margaret Cho, who will stop by Sol to introduce the band. Cho has described the crazed fan reactions The Cliks have been garnering worldwide as “queer Beatle-mania.” Dance music for the evening will be provided by Fucci, whose regular DJ credits include gigs at Cattyshack, Metropolitan, Outpost and Happy Ending.
If that weren’t enough encouragement, proceeds from every ticket sold will benefit The Callen-Lorde Community Health Center’s Lesbian Health Services. Callen-Lorde provides gynecological services and comprehensive primary care that is focused on women’s health. Their experienced medical staff also provides female patients with colposcopy, cryotherapy and LEEP, procedures designed to diagnose and treat pre-cancerous changes of the cervix. Regular mammography screening is also routinely offered. And all of these services are provided to any patient, regardless of their ability to pay.
Don’t miss this spectacular opportunity to catch The Cliks and Margaret Cho, mingle with high-profile guests, all the while partaking in fantastic drink specials, including open bar from 8 to 9pm and, dancing at the glamorous Sol. And it all benefits the important work at Callen-Lorde.
